Course Description

This comprehensive course will help you develop your basic CCNA routing and switching skills. It will lay the foundation of understanding the network layers 1-3 which apply to core routing and switching. You will gain hands-on experience to develop basic networking skills to configure, monitor and troubleshoot Cisco networks. You will use Cisco ISR 4300/3560/3850/C9300/4506 series routers and switches to apply the Cisco IOS (Internetwork Operating System). Other topics to be covered include: understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, IPv6 and basic network security.

ICND1 is the first step in a two-part path to achieve the CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The second step is, ICND2 (CCNA Bootcamp) which delves further into the topics started in ICND1.
